“We however thank almighty God that the aged man’s life was a blessing to Yoruba land and Nigeria because he was succeeded by a great personality like Aare Gani Adams, whom he witnessed his numerous successes before passing on ditto for other children.
“We pray that God will give Aare Adams and his other siblings the fortitude to bear the loss. For us, it is a celebration of a worthy life because Yoruba say ‘Baba ku baba ku”.
